“Luckily, the parking lot only deleted footage every three months because of the relatively heavy flow of tourism that took place at Cramond Ghost Island during the summer months. The old man in charge of the parking lot security cameras asked us why we needed the footage. Ethan told him that I met someone there at noon on a Saturday in July and that the police needed to verify that this meeting took place on that date.

The old man had to review footage of the four Saturdays in July. He grumbled as he escorted us to a small viewing room at the rear end of the parking lot. Ethan and I sat down next to the old man as he began his search. He rolled back to the first Saturday at noon but found nothing. The second Saturday also showed nothing. On the third Saturday, my car appeared in the footage as I parked in between two cars at exactly twelve o’clock in the afternoon. The man kept the film rolling for me for another half an hour. Andy’s car never appeared.”

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Sophie’s World really does transport the reader to another world inside the mind of its namesake. From the first page, I was enthralled and could not put the book down (or my eyes off my tablet) until the last one. A mystery and psychological voyage, Sophie’s World was indeed an interlude from all around me that I thoroughly enjoyed. At the end of it, I reluctantly left Sophie’s World wanting to read more! I look forward to what Ranya, this amazing first time author, will share with the world next!

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    By far one of the most enthralling psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time…I devoured the book in one sitting. A must read for real.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    A spectacular read! Sophie’s World truly is a wonderful example of a novel that transports the reader to a whole new world. With beautifully developed characters and a unique storyline, I was grossly engaged throughout. Khalifa truly captures the essence of what it means to be lost and confused by your own thoughts and feelings. There was never a moment at which I felt I wanted to put down the book, and I find myself eagerly awaiting the next novel by this magnificent author!
